Stopping Obama’s Big Gov’t Agenda

April 5, 2013
Next year’s midterm elections are critical. The only thing standing in the way of Pres. Obama’s big government agenda is the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

ObamaCare in Court

Obama’s Costly Subsidies

President Obama’s crony-capitalism keeps costing American taxpayers as this Wall Street Journal editorial spells out.
